    Separate Licence for Car Park Space

    Can any one point me in the right direction? I would like to create a separate Licence agreement to give parking rights to prospective tenants , which is completely independent to the AST contract. Such a license would allow me to possibly withdraw the parking based on reasonable notice etc. Is this possible? and if so, where/or whom do I go to get such an agreement drawn up? If I am relying on either a letting agency standard AST contract or my own (via National Landlords Assocation) do I need to have the terms amended to state that the AST does not cover carparking or some reference to the licence?

    I know the above amounts to asking for free legal advice but if anyone can let me know if it is possible , I am more than happy to get in contact and pay for sound advice? At this stage not sure whom best to approach.

    I am trying to protect my position in the future should there be issues with tenants, without affecting their rights to enjoyment etc of the apartment, and wondering if there might be a solution here?

    Regards

    License

    The concept of creating a license (right to use) as opposed to a tenancy (giving legal title in the land) is fraught with difficulties and there's much case law on it.
    Just because you might call an agreement a licence does not, in law, mean that it is one - it's the situation that matters.
    I would say you need advice from a specialist property solicitor - see our Directory: Solicitors and Legal.

        I would have thought that you could have built such a clause into the AST with the condition that you withhold the right to use.

          No. Either one lets or one doesn't; how do you imagine a clause could let it but give L the right to withhold?

            I don't know exactly but maybe something like:

            The LL withholds the right to refuse use of car parking space, consent not to be unreasonably withheld... or something.

              Sorry but that still doesn't make sense: is it let or is it not? How can one let and then withhold?

                How about if it was not let without in the first instance, ie explicitly excluded with something like 'with written consent of the LL' added?

                (I personally think its a lot simpler to include the space with the Tenancy)...

                  Still tosh!
                  Only way is to have two separate Agreements: AST for flat, and common-law contractual grant for the parking.

                        I concede, nowhere near as much (if at all anything) as you my friend, I am going through a learning curve myself !

                          Thanks both, the Section 21 checker was very helpful and I passed all the steps for my Section 21. I am pretty certain it is a valid Section 21.

                          Has anyone had experiences with how easy it is to reclaim the possession costs from the tenant if they won? I know the court can claim the costs...

                          Hi all,

                          I'm sure this has been answered before, but I'm having difficulty finding an answer using the search function.

                          My tenant is currently on a statutory periodic tenancy.

                          I wanted to ask who pays for the costs involved a Section 21 possession claim. Fees such...

                          A single parent with a young(ish) child is going to be a priority for housing long term, but she does seem to be in complete denial.

                          Personally I think you get to be daft in your twenties, or until you have a child.
                          At that point, your idiot permission is revoked.

                          My tenant was supposed to have left yesterday but she hasn't so this morning I posted my N325-eng form with the £130 for the bailiffs.

                          I am expecting the court to take about three weeks to issue the warrant and four to six weeks for the bailiffs to come so about two months or so. She...

                          I was thinking that if it took three weeks for the court to send out the possession order, then they would probably take three weeks to get round to sending the warrant. The judge read the written evidence on 5 July but we didn't get it until 29 July. It's not the end of the world if there is a delay,...

                          I think there is a way of delegated service by taking an ad in a newspaper but I may be out of date. The question always is are we going to get paid by spending more in pursuing a tenant. The main thing is to get a bad tenant out

                          First post and straight in with a question! We had a CCJ against a bad tenant and can't enforce/ recover the debt because the person refuses to provide their address. The prior address was our property and the only correspondence address is her debt management company. I've looked at address tracing...

                          The court will award the costs against whoever loses the case (unless something very weird has gone on), but you'll pay for the claim(s) and would have to recover them from the tenant.

                          You can apply to the court the day after your notice expires.

                          See what happens. Many tenants leave on simply being served or when court papers issued.

                          Further, many s21 are invalid anyway : have you checked it with eg info from nearly legal or shelter?

                          (Assuming lease written sensibly) he'd almost certainly need to relinquish his interests and right to lease. Difficult given what you say is diagnosis.
